CitizenGo Petition for Dr Church: Final Hearing 7th October.

Oct 5, 2015 by

Editor’s note: Although this case (like Planned Parenthood) has been ignored by most of the news media, it is an important example of the threat to freedom of conscience and professional integrity caused by the new controlling ideas in the Western world. Many people are praying for a fair hearing and a just outcome, and for truth to prevail. [Extract from the Petition to the Board of Beth Israel Hospital] […] Dr. Church is an experienced urologist and has been part of Beth Israel’s staff for nearly 30 years. The administration at Beth Israel is attempting to expel him under false harassment claims for discussing high-risk sexual behaviors with fellow doctors. This is completely unacceptable. As it stands, BIDMC is putting politics over patient care…I strongly urge the Board of Directors to reverse the decision of the Medical Executive Committee and keep Dr. Church on your staff… Please sign petition...

Oregon moves to seize property from couple who refused to bake cake for lesbian ‘wedding’

Oct 3, 2015 by

By Lisa Bourne, LifeSite: The State agency that ordered an Oregon Christian couple to pay two lesbians $135,000 for refusing to take part in their homosexual “wedding” has begun legal proceedings to seize the couple’s assets. Aaron and Melissa Klein, of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, were fined by an administrative judge this past spring after declining in January 2013 to bake a cake for the same-sex event based on their religious beliefs. The fine had been ordered by The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, which had accused them of violating the Oregon Equality Act of 2007. “Our agency has docketed the judgment and is exploring collection options,” said Charlie Burr, communications director for the Bureau, The Daily Signal reports. Docketing the judgment means putting it on the formal records of the court, and is the first step the Bureau must take in the course of seizing the Kleins’ house,...

UN Bureaucracy To Push “LGBT Rights” Despite Tensions

Oct 2, 2015 by

By Stefano Gennarini JD, C-Fam: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon promised that homosexual and transgender rights would advance at the United Nations despite the strain it will cause within the organization and between states. “Mostly I have not been successful,” Ban Ki-moon lamented, while recounting episodes from his “personal diplomacy” to promote lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights worldwide. The outgoing Secretary General spoke to an adoring audience of delegates and advocates at UN headquarters on Tuesday during a special event on the sideline of the General Assembly. Departing from prepared remarks, he explained that his relationship with powerful UN member states had been made “difficult” because of his frequent and insistent advocacy for LGBT rights. But Ban, now in his final year in office, brushed aside any concerns about losing political good will. Read here...

Bisexuality: All you need to know about bivisibility

Sep 28, 2015 by

From BBC Newsbeat: If you’ve been paying close attention to Twitter trends, you’ll probably already know it’s Celebrate Bisexuality Day, or #BiVisibilityDay. If not, then let us explain. Started in 1999 by three Americans, the day is held every year on 23 September and is about bisexual communities around the world celebrating and promoting their sexuality. We asked Young Adult Fiction author Lucy Lapinski, who is bisexual, to explain: What is BiVisibility Day and why is it happening? #BiVisibilityDay is exactly how it sounds – about making yourself, if it’s safe for you to do so, “visible” as a bisexual person. This could be on social media, or out on the streets. The day is also known as Celebrate Bisexuality Day, which I think sounds incredibly positive. Really, the day is about celebrating your identity and that of others. What message do you need to get across to people...

Gay clergy who defied bishops by marrying their male partners run for Synod

Sep 27, 2015 by

From Mailonline: Two gay clergy who both married their male partners in defiance of the Archbishop of Canterbury are standing for election to the Church of England’s ruling body. If Canon Jeremy Pemberton and the Rev Andrew Foreshew-Cain win places on the General Synod, it will embarrass bishops who issued guidance last year banning clergy from entering same-sex marriages. Canon Pemberton, a hospital chaplain in Lincolnshire, is in the middle of a court battle with a bishop who ‘sacked’ him from his role as a priest, while Mr Foreshew-Cain has been privately rebuked by his bishop. They are among several openly gay clergy and lay people standing for the Synod in the run-up to a contentious debate as early as next year over whether the Church should drop its ban on same-sex marriage and the formal blessing of civil partnerships.
